A robot that feels, sees and, in particular, thinks and learns like us. UT researchers want to implement the cognitive process of the human brain in robots. The research should lead to the arrival of the latest version of the iCub robot in Twente. This human robot (humanoid) blurs the boundaries between robot and human.
Decades of scientific research into cognitive psychology and the brain have given us knowledge about language, memory, motor skills and perception. We can now use that knowledge in robots, but this research goes even further. The application of cognition in technical systems should also mean that the robot learns from its experiences and the actions it performs.
